OCEAN SHORES, Wash. – An Ocean Shores couple have been arrested for multiple burglaries in the beach community, evidence gathered at the couple’s home leads officers to believe that the family took their young children with them on some of the burglaries.

An off-duty officer interrupted their most recent attempt when he noticed his neighbors door open. The fleeing couple were later apprehended by on-duty officers and admitted to Thursday’s burglary. Further investigation and a search warrant netted evidence linking the couple to at least three additional burglaries in the area over the past two weeks, including some jewelry that was being worn by the couples children. Both suspects were booked into the Grays Harbor County Jail.
